A gritty conflagration!

  • Conclusion: It's a great game! Not without it's flaws but defiantly well worth playing. While the story of the first game was very similar to that of Star Wars. Colony Wars Vengeance truly distinguishes itself separate from the Star Wars mould.
  • Pros: I'm a fan of the Colony Wars series. Ironically I played them all in reverse, noticing how each one had improved upon its predecessor.

  • Summary: Colony Wars significa la sofisticacion del genero al sustituir la simpleza de una nave que se desplaza por la pantalla por una cabina de mandos cargada de posibilidades. La idea sigue siendo idéntica: diparar a naves enemigas, pero ahora lo haremos desde la perspectiva de un simulador.
  • Pros: dicierte
  • Cons: dificil
